Rated 5 / 5 stars

This game is great in so many aspects,but i feel like the experience could be better if the performance could be better. maybe if you implemented a quality toggle option.

This game is pretty great, I won't lie. The idea was fairly well, and this would have been a perfect game if not for a few minor issues that can be easily corrected.

The gameplay was done very well. However, one of the issues is how the notes matched up with the music. It's near impossible to get the notes to line up perfectly with the music, I know. But when you're actually hitting the notes to the beat, you usually only get good. Therefore, in order to get perfects, you need to basically click a little after the beat, which makes it feel a bit more like you're clicking randomly while listening to music, which isn't that great. Also, the notes where you have to click and drag are somewhat confusing. I often would run into them and since everything was going really fast, I wouldn't have time to react and realize that I wasn't hitting a basic note.

The art style was done well. Buttons and animations were basic but smooth. The change in backgrounds gave nice variation, and they weren't too distracting except for maybe the one in the second song. You could have done a bit more with color and such to outline buttons that are different. Maybe adding stripes to ones that are click and drag, and checkering the ones that are click and hold? But really, the art and animation was stable and worked well with the game.

The music was really good, but every artist has their own flair. It's not that fun listening to that same flair every single song. Some variation with the artists would be fantastic, but it doesn't entirely matter. xKore is a good artist, and worked well with this game, so I won't nitpick too much.

In the end, this was a fairly good game. I'm going to give it four stars, but I can definitely see why someone would give it five. Rhythm games were never really my thing, but this was nice to see and enjoyable for me.

This game reminds me a lot of Osu!.
The game is nice but its so slow and the animation annoys me so much.
You should try making a more fun skin for the buttons.
The music is very nice but you really should improve the gameplay and the design of this game.
